It is a melting pot where you can sit quietly or with friends. Nobody cares. Many gluten free and alternative meals available. Nice one.

As in the title :) just tourists sitting there, but the coffee was lovely, and the menu extensive. A bit pricey, but it's in the main street (Yonker Walk). My tip for the people running this place: change the music! People don't want to listen to Elvis when they visit Melaka, really!

Read many reviews saying that this place had a variety of cocktails and liquors. Decided to try this place during my last visit to Melaka and I was surprised to see the list of alcohols that they have! Most which I haven't heard of. Other than their variety of alcohols, the prices were cheap too! You could ask for a... More

food just okay. Their curry dishes seem to all use the same base. The upside of this place is that it's big and you can get a table any time despite it being in the middle of busy Jonker St. Wouldn't go back for food, just drinks or coffee.

I have ordered satay, spaghetti and watermelon juice. The only dish that I can eat was spaghetti. The cumin in satay sauce is too strong. The watermelon juice taste just like water. The waiters and waitresses are slow response maybe there were a lot of people at the time that I been there.

I could only stay here for a while as the music too loud. Staff was slow and would deliver the items to the wrong tables. However, this cafe is on a nice corner and good for watching the tourists walk buy - ifyou can stand the noise.

Not a bad place to spend some time. It does frequently get hit by waves of visitors. In between waves it's even worth taking a detour for, in order to drop by. BTW Please add espresso machiato to the menu ;-)

Ok, I've been holed up around the corner from Jonker Street for almost two weeks. I'm not a big eater here but I've been here six or seven times. Certainly we all understand the value of being at a well kept, up to date open air venue on the best corner in town, don't we? Good, let's move on... The... More

This is a great cafe on a corner location on Jonker street where you could sit the whole day and watch people pass by. The coffee is great and the food menu is limited but the focus is on fresh ingredients. We had the nasi goreng which was nice. Recommended for it's location, atmosphere, location, coffee and fresh food. I... More
